During the cold winter months, when you turn on the heat, it can get pretty dry and you may feel uncomfortable. Many people use humidifiers to keep the air in home healthy and clean, but there are other things you can do to improve humidity when the air’s drying out your skin, furniture, and etc.
If you take baths, leave the water in the tub after you have finished bathing. Letting it sit and cool allows more moisture to evaporate into the air than when you are showering. Please note: leave the bathroom door open because otherwise, it won’t travel through your apartment.
You may want to consider trying to decorate with bowls of water. Place a few around your house and the water will evaporate into the dry air. If you happen to have radiant steam heat, place a water bowl on top of radiators to heat the water and aid in evaporation. Give it a try!
When you cook on the stovetop, it releases moisture into your home’s air during cold winter weather. When the air is dry, try to cook something that can be done on the stovetop. When you cook in the oven, it dries the air out even more, but the stovetop adds more moisture.
Keep your apartment moisturized, clean and healthy – give it a try!
